How Emily Saved the Bridge: The Story of Emily Warren Roebling and the Building of the Brooklyn Bridge

Emily was not an engineer, but she was educated in math and science. She married Washington Roebling, the chief engineer of the famous bridge. When Washington became ill from decompression sickness, Emily stepped in, doing everything from keeping the books, to carrying messages for her husband, to monitoring the construction of the bridge. She was the first person to cross the Brooklyn Bridge when it opened — and later went on to study law and accomplish many other things!

Frieda Wishinsky’s informative and engaging text and Natalie Nelson’s distinctive collage illustrations provide a fun introduction to this inspiring STEM pioneer! Speech bubbles revealing imagined dialogue add a playful note to this historical account, which includes fascinating facts about the Brooklyn Bridge and a further reading list. It will make kids look at this iconic landmark in a whole new way.
